Capturing Characters

Regardless of who you voted for in the presidential election, there is a certain illustrator out there who is able to capture the essence of the person. His name is Robert Carley—from Darien, Connecticut—who has been sketching presidents for many years.

A recent article in the Sunday Art & Style section of the Stamford Advocate showed several of his caricatures along with an explanation of how he goes about drawing his subjects. Robert says: “When I start a caricature, I don’t just start thinking about the subject’s features, I think about the person’s personality”. He starts with the eyes and relies on pictures he has saved for more than 25 years to capture candidates in unguarded moments.

“He likes to make people smile, not sneer.” A very lofty goal, especially during this Election of 2016!
